rojkind arquitectos is a Mexico City based innovative firm whose work spans across a diverse and global platform, providing solutions to contemporary architectural and urban strategies. We are nurtured by a multinational team, gathering experts from all fields that are involved in a highly collaborative research and experimental based design process. We are committed to achieving design excellence; but above all, we pursue a fascination for thorough investigation and exploration of contemporary programs, the latest technologies, and the translation of complex digital design into simple solutions for local fabrication. The result: a wide spectrum of design initiatives, from the intimacies of small objects to the complexities of large buildings and master plans. By understanding that our profession is at constant flux (economical, political, social) we are willing to take risks and pursue uncommon paths by providing urban strategies that are able to go beyond what is expected or what is normally a given.
rojkind arquitectos has won several Honors and Awards, including Interior Design’s Best of the Year 2011 Award, as well as Arch Daily’s Building of the Year 2011 Award. The firm was recognized by Architectural Record in 2005 as one of the ten best ‘Design Vanguard’ firms. In 2010, Michel invited Gerardo Salinas AIA to become the firm’s first partner.
